Patricia Hodge & Nigel Havers, Private Lives

Elyot and Amanda, who were once married, find themselves in adjoining rooms in the same hotel on the French coast, both on honeymoon with their new partners. Their initial horror quickly evaporates and soon they’re sharing cocktails and a romantic serenade.

The production stars Olivier Award-winning Patricia Hodge as Amanda and Nigel Havers as Elyot, the role taken by Noël Coward himself in the original production in 1930. Dugald Bruce-Lockhart plays Victor, Natalie Walter Sibyl and Aïcha Kossoko Louise.
